Man cured of hearing eyeballs move28th July 2011
A man with a medical condition which meant he heard his eyeballs move in their sockets has been cured.
In addition, Stephen Mabutt, 57, from Oxfordshire, also heard his own heart beating and was finding it difficult to hear the world around him. He was referred to Martin Burton, a surgeon from the Oxford Radcliffe Hospital who conducted a CT scan and noticed perforations inside the semicircular canals inside Mr Mabutt’s ear. He brought it to the attention of Richard Irving at the Birmingham Ear Clinic who diagnosed superior canal dehiscence syndrome (SCDS) and carried out the surgery.
